For those of you who’ve been asking me how I do my lettering on my hoops, here’s a time-lapse I did of one awhile ago. About 1:30 in I write on thin lined paper how I want the letters to look, pencil first, then pen. I usually trace the curve of the hoop too to make sure it curves with it. Then I pin it down and embroider right through the paper and follow my lines as closely as I can. Then when I’m finished I carefully pull out the paper from underneath. Any other questions I’d be happy to answer, they’re no secret.
Throwback Thursday to 2008 when I was obsessed with making ’90s rappers bears’ and gave them ridiculous names like “Fresh Prince of Bear-Air”, “Notorious B.E.A.R.” and “Beastie Bears.” This isn’t even all of them.
